was always striving for a big deal. from the speaker's perspective, the white house at the last minute from their view moved the goal posts. they -- what it sounds like, not only comes to some agreement on a framework, but they were talking real details on some of these proposals, having to do with cuts and spending cuts and medicare and enconstitutitlemen all that. after this agreement that they have come to -- it had reached, they say the white house moved the goal posts. and in their view, speaker bane her to step back, take stock of the situation and really look at the calendar very seriously. as he said had, to do something because the white house's vision was not in line with that of congress. and that's why speaker boehner has now made this very aggressive move saying he's now just working with congress on this. >> jessica, we're running very tight on time tonight. i want to get through a lot fast. is there a sense when you look at the numbers that both sides talk about, even if you take their conflicting versions of what happened, i had the sense they were both talking about really
earth there. and i'm a big space geek. i love that. we'll see you back here tomorrow. "in the arena" starts right now. >>> good evening and welcome. i'm tom foreman. tonight we are getting mixed signals about a possible back room deal on the debt ceiling just hours away from what president obama at least at one point called a deadline for a decision. "the new york times" says president obama and the republican speaker of the house john boehner are close to an agreement. roughly it would involve $3 trillion in cuts and an eventual overhaul of the entire tax system. here's the catch, though. other sources are shooting down the idea that this is even happening as fast and hard as they can. listen to boehner himself earlier today on rush limbaugh's radio show. >> rush, there is no deal. no deal publicly, no deal privately. there is absolutely no deal. >> no deal, no deal, no deal. now, here's the white house spokesman jay carney. >> there is no deal. we are not close to a deal. we are -- obviously, the president is in discussions with all the leaders of congress as well as other members
for joining us. if we don't get a deal out of washington before the big bad debt ceiling deadline, one of the guys you can blame or thank, depending on how you see it, is congressman joe walsh, a republican from illinois. he's one of those freshmen who rode the tea party wave into washington last fall. we mentioned them a moment ago. he spoke out against a compromise at a tea party rally in washington earlier today. listen. >> i'm a freshman. maybe i'm naive. but i don't think unless we force -- unless we force republicans and democrats to balance their books every year, they won't. the only way we can do that is to force them. the only way we can force them is to put a balanced budget amendment in the constitution. we have to do that. we can't yield. >> and congressman walsh joins me now live from capitol hill. congressman, welcome back to the show here. listen, you know what i'm hearing more than anything around d.c., people are saying about you and some of the other people who are really holding the hard line here, don't these guys know how to take a win? because the feeling is that
, a big thumbs down over there, and then -- then -- we will move on. but the number of votes on either side really doesn't matter so much as this number. the number of days and hours now left until the money runs out. this is what we've been warning about for weeks and weeks. still, the vote today was enough to al lookout low the republica spike the ball into boehner's court. and he did so with a vengeance. >> i struck my neck out a mile to try and get in agreement with the president of the united states. i stuck my neck out a mile. and i put revenues on the table. in order to try to come to an agreement to avert us being where we are. but a lot of people in this town can never say yes. a lot of people can never say yes. this house has acted. and it is time for the administration and time for our colleagues across the aisle, put something on the table. tell us where you are! >> well, over in the senate, what they are putting on the table is mr. boehner's bill. they'll kill it over there. that's under way right now. we'll let you wln voting is done on that. this makes the vote tonight i
their case. the big question that was, you know, not answered, you know, how did, you know, caylee die. i think there was probably a lot of discussion that it was probably a horrific accident that dad and casey covered up and unfortunately did so and it got away from them. it was such a horrific accident, they didn't know how to deal with it. the family appeared to be very dysfunctional, and instead of admitting, you know, there was an accident, they chose to hide it for whatever reason. >> the casey trial brought out the worst in many people. there were ugly scenes during the course of the trial as people actually got into shoving matches in their powerful desire to get a seat to watch the show. and that's what it was to many people -- a show, a reality show on steroids. did the media play a role in that? casey anthony's defense attorneys think so. >> i hope that this is a lesson to those of you that have indulged in media assassination for three years, bias and prejudice and incompetent talking heads saying what would be and how to be. i'm disgusted by some of the lawyers that have done
what, these are important times, we're debating big, passionate issues. when my president, when your president, goes on tv and says that he's going to have to start pulling social security checks on august 3rd, he's not being truthful with the american people. so, you know, look. i'm tired of politicians all over the place who don't talk straight and just say what they believe. let's cut through all the crud and try to solve issues here. let's quit being political. and i think that's all this president's been doing. >> you think the talk about social security was essentially a scare tactic? >> absolutely. we know -- and this is -- this is what they began a few months ago when they began talking about this notion of default. they know, we know, there are plenty of government revenues to service your debt, to service our debt when august 2nd comes and goes, if it comes and goes. same thing with social security checks. and my fear is that he's going to continue down this line and try to scare military families. and try to scare families who have student loans. and just continue to go do
